If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where this kind of an option is made available. The fact is that, that's something relatively frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Of course, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our hosting feature an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do so with simply several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very easy to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
